The centre is tasked with developing and growing the HPC pipeline in South Africa and as such, supports initiatives where it can showcase High Performance Computing as a career. University of Johannesburg's Soweto Science Centre and Science-tube hosted a series of lectures, interactive workshops, demonstrations and exhibitions at Miriyavhavha Technical Secondary School in Ha-Khakhu village, Vhembe Limpopo.

Lectures and workshops covered the following themes:
CHPC used the platform to exhibit and showcase what a career in HPC entails. The interaction and response from the Grade 8 to Grade 12 learners who attended was outstanding and some now see high performance computing as a possible career when they previously did not know what a supercomputer was. Their parents welcomed the career interaction their children recived over the two days.
